  • EU-project „CEPH“
    This project brings together stakeholders from across Europe who already have experience in Passive House design training. Based on this knowledge the most experienced consortium partners will generate a ten-day intensive course in Passive House design.
  • EU-Project “passive house retrofit kit”

    Major outcomes are:
    - Design Guidelines and an enhanced PHPP-Software
    - Design Tool for developing cost effective all season Passive Houses
    - a set of Policy Proposals for Policy makers

Local and regional authorities, universities and institutes from 10 regions in 5 countries in the North Sea Region are active in the project, which started in 2008. The website informs about applied technologies, best practise examples as well as training courses.
